On June 26, 2018, the Food Packaging Forum (FPF) held a public webinar on the challenges for food packaging in the circular economy.

Dr. Brigit Geueke of the FPF presented the foundation’s latest peer-reviewed article on food packaging in the circular economy that reports on recycling of five types of commonly used food packaging, with special focus on typical contaminants in recycled materials (FPF reported). After the presentation, there was time for questions.

The video recording of the webinar as well as Dr. Geueke’s presentation slides are now available on the event website.
